Future Unicorn Award 2019
The Future Unicorn Award aims at celebrating SMEs from across Europe that have the potential to become the future European Tech giants. It puts under the spotlight SMEs which have demonstrated to be successful in digitising their business processes and in offering innovative digital products and services.
The award is compiled by asking all the national trade associations affiliated with DIGITALEUROPE to select a single SME from their country. This results in a truly pan-European selection of incredible digital companies from all sectors, including financial technologies (iyzico), education technologies (LearnUpon), eHealth (Turbine), mobility (MaaS), energy (Envelio), and so many more.
The award is also a testimony of the vital importance of SMEs in the wider digital ecosystem. It represents an opportunity to advocate for EU-wide policies and regulatory frameworks that nurture the entrepreneurial culture and enable SMEs to scale up.
The ceremony took place on 21 February 2019 at the Masters of Digital Conference and the award was handed by Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society. The three 2019 awarded winners are MaaS Global, Teslasuit and Umbraco.
